trying to replace the sequester. the cuts have enemies on both sides of the aisle. democrats don't like cuts to head start and meals on wheels. republicans don't like the cuts to defense, which military leaders argued hurt the readiness of the armed forces. just ask former secretary robert gates. >> there may be a more stupid way to cut the budget than sequestration. if there is, i have not been able to identify it. these across the board mindless cuts that make no difference between what is important and what's unimportant is a crazy way to try and deal with the budget issue. >> so, can congress find a way to fix it or is washington's dysfunction destined to doom this effort as well? let's bring in two exerts. john avalon and my friend from cnn money. i appreciate you joining me. i hope it is better this time around. to you, john, sequester was supposed to be the poison pill. what about this time? >> that is right. every time we set out the self-imposed markers designed to scare congress, they have been managed to blow past it. the impulse to charge into the bayonette was a super fail.
